If Iraq goes to civil war another 'Saddam Hussein' would come to power

As Iraq teeters on the edge of civil war with the former British ambassador of Iraq saying that a low-level civil war was already taking place, if it explodes into a full-fledged civil war there could be a 'new Saddam Hussein' coming to power to take control of the country, that according to Andrew Krepinevich, a Pentagon advisor and head of a military think tank.

Zalmay Khalilzad, who is the US ambassador to Iraq, has been working almost around the clock since the bombing of a Shiite shrine to head off a civil war and urging Iraqi leaders that everything that needs to be done, must be done to avoid a civil war. Iraq's minister of defense said that if a civil war breaks out, it will never end and will extend into the entire Middle Eastern region.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The rise of a new 'Saddam Hussein' if civil war breaks out in Iraq is a page out of Bible prophecy. Officially, talk of civil war in Iraq is frowned upon in Washington, D.C. but the truth is at least a low-level civil war is already underway and everyday the violence intensifies with many saying that a full-fledged civil war is at the door, ready to explode.

Many leaders in the region are concerned that the civil war in Iraq would spread into Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, and even Turkey. The Pentagon advisor, Andrew Krepinevich, says that if civil war does happen, the only way out would be a new 'Saddam Hussein', a strong political leader that could bring the country out of civil war.

That scenario is actually a page out of Bible prophecy, a prophecy from of the book of Revelation that says the Antichrist will come into Iraq at the midway point of the seven-year Tribulation Period, and setup a world-wide, economic, political, governmental system; that's found in Revelation 18 with input from Jeremiah 50 and 51 and Isaiah 13 and 14. This strongman, the Antichrist, will operate out of Iraq, Babylon in Bible terminology, until just before the Messiah, Jesus Christ, comes back to the earth; that's found in Revelation 16:17-20.

Civil war in Iraq would indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
